Like a peacock fanning its plumage, Andalusia, Flannery O’Connor’s homeplace in Milledgeville, is undergoing a restoration sure to enliven the author’s notoriety beyond her traditional readership.
“We’ve always had literary pilgrims from around the world who visit once and shed a tear,” says director Elizabeth Wylie. “We welcome them, but we’re also transforming this place into a working farm, with a variety of programming that celebrates the arts and life ways of O’Connor’s era. We want visitors to have reasons to return and gain something new and enriching from each experience.”
